This extraordinary location will host our Summer meeting. We will be there in force on the second day, Sunday 14 July, but several you might want to join a group also planning to participate in the fun on the first day, Saturday 13 July, and stay over either in the Hotel itself or locally in Droitwich Spa.
Chateau Impney has developed a rich motoring heritage over the years, a tradition that began when the Hagley and District Light Car Club organised their first sprint in the grounds of the hotel on 29 September 1957. The event was a roaring success, with Autocar magazine hailing the Chateau as “easily the most picturesque of this country’s sprint and hill-climb venues”. The sprints continued for the next ten years, before finishing in 1967.
In 2015, this historic motoring event was revived as the Chateau Impney Hill Climb, which saw over 200 competitors tackle a longer, more demanding course across two days. The Chateau’s first-rate facilities, which include 106 en-suite bedrooms, nine self-catering apartments, a stylish restaurant and bar and extensive exhibition facilities, housed not just a competitive motorsport event, but a classic car auction, a Concours d’Elegance, and a trade exhibition with over 60 businesses.
